Mercedes-Benz's flagship electric sedan will start at $144,200, before shipping, when it silently rolls into Canadian dealerships this fall.
Delivery fees vary by dealer, Mercedes-Benz Canada said in an email.
The battery-powered S-Class is at the vanguard of a wave of EVs that Mercedes will deliver to North America as the luxury automaker pivots to become an all-electric brand.
"The S-Class is such a symbol for the brand, and that will help us create the momentum we need for the decade," Daimler CEO Ola Källenius said on the sidelines of the IAA Munich auto show earlier this month. "We are upping the ante on the product side, and we are on a very accelerated path. We have to get 100 percent of the market."
The EQS will be available in Canada with four packages: Premium, Sport, Night and Executive Rear Seating. Each has separate pricing.
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS sedan is built on a new EV platform called EVA2.
Mercedes-Benz Canada is offering only the EQS 580 4MATIC, which is all-wheel drive. It will not offer the EQS 450 in either 4MATIC or rear-wheel drive, which are both available in the United States.
Available in rear- and all-wheel drive, the EQS is powered by a 107.8-kilowatt-hour battery that delivers approximately 700 kilometres (343 miles) of range, based on the WLTP testing cycle.
The sedan has sports car-like performance, delivering up to 516 hp and with a 0 to 60 mph time of up to 4.1 seconds.
The EQS can be charged with up to 200 kilowatts at fast-charging stations with direct current — recovering up to 300 kilometers (186 miles) of range in 15 minutes.
A 126.4-inch wheelbase creates a roomy interior, while an aerodynamic exterior reduces the EV's drag coefficient to 0.20, Mercedes said.
Available rear-axle steering — capable of a steering angle of up to 10 degrees — allows the more than 17-foot-long sedan to have the maneuvreability of a compact car.
The EQS, packed with up to 350 sensors, boasts smart tech and spacious displays.
The cockpit is anchored by a 56-inch curved high-resolution "Hyperscreen" that stretches from A-pillar to A-pillar and combines three screens — a 17.7-inch centre display flanked by a pair of 12.3-inch screens.
